CONWAY, S.C. – The Coastal Carolina men’s soccer team look to run its unbeaten streak to five when the Chanticleers welcome the College of Charleston to the Coastal Carolina Soccer Field Saturday at noon.
Coastal Carolina (3-2-1) hasn’t lost since Sept. 6 and is outscoring its opponents 9-2 during the unbeaten streak, which included shutouts in three of the four games.
The Chants enter the weekend coming of a 2-2 draw with Elon that saw Sebastian Bahos and Joe Anderson score goals for Coastal.
In the previous game, Ross Kelly scored two goals in helping lead Coastal to a 4-0 blanking of George Washington. Kelly is first on the team and tied for first in the Big South with three goals on the season. The Houston, Texas, native also scored the game-winning goal with a header in the second overtime in a 1-0 win over Wofford.
Coastal keeper Scott Angevine has been stellar in net this season for the Chants and ranks first in the league with a 0.78 goals against average.
College of Charleston (4-2-1) is riding a four-game winning streak following its 1-0 upset win over No. 19 Wake Forest Tuesday night. The Cougars were picked to win the Southern Conference and currently sit in second place in the league.
Sophomore forward Francis Twohig leads the College of Charleston with 10 points on five goals, while midfielder Sean De Silva is second with nine points on three goals and three assists.
“College of Charleston returns a lot of starters from last year’s team and brings a very good team into Conway this weekend,” head coach Shaun Docking said. “I expect them to be an NCAA Tournament team this year, and I think this game will be a test for us against probably the best team we have faced all year.”
Coastal owns a 12-7-4 record against the College of Charleston in the all-time series that dates back to the 1978 season. The Chanticleers are also 4-2-2 all-time at home against the Cougars and have lost not to the College of Charleston at the CCU Soccer Field since 1984.
